Enough Wading Already

Enough Wading Already

Hey Team,

There’s been a whole lot of wading going on in the last couple days. Most importantly I went wading through a cranberry bog yesterday! Granted, it almost killed me and I’m more than a little surprised I didn’t lose any toes to frostbite but it’s done. And I have to admit it seemed like a much better idea six months ago when it made it on the list and the weather was nice and warm than it did yesterday when I was standing in front of an irrigation canal with my pants around my ankles.

I’ll even admit I may have lost my normally calm and cool composure when I started screaming things like, “NO NOO I CHANGED MY MIND!!!!” and “PLEASE GOD HELP ME GET OUT OF HERE I CAN’T FEEL MY FEET!!!” but all’s well that ends well, right? I can’t wait to get the video up so you guys can see how pathetic I’m capable of being. (Sometimes sarcasm just doesn’t sound right in type.)

Speaking of video, that’s where the rest of the wading comes in, I have a pile of tapes next to me as I type this and it amounts to about five podcasts that aren’t done yet. BUT, I’m going to start trying something new here in the exciting pages of Amtrekker and through iTunes. So here’s the first of the “new” to explain things and please leave plenty of feedback and let me know your thoughts. I’m super curious what you all think about the videos and how they and the site in general can be improved.

I’ll try to get at least two more videos up this week…maybe three if I’m awesome.

Thanks Team.

I’m done.


Also…feel free to leave your feedback in the form of a donation to keep things rolling.

Don’t let me stop you.

  1. For your cowardice and procrastination, you so should’ve been doused with a bucket of frigid bog-water, in true Ocean Spray fashion!
    Question: Most people would roll their pant legs up to wade, but my real concern though is what you were doing with your “pants around your ankles.”
    A group of five guys with a living room style fort set up in the back of a budget truck, pants around your ankles, on the side of a massachusettes highway, huh? Hmmm. A lot of movies I don’t want to watch start like that…

  2. Sounds like a plan, Brett. Since you’re not far from the home of LL Bean in Freeport, maybe someone could help you get them to donate some winter clothes to your effort, so that you don’t have some of your important parts freezing and falling off?

  3. I like it, I can get an (almost) daily Amtrekker dose. Can I donate green earmuffs or something? Cold ears suck.
